Quinta do Pégo Port LBV 2013 - 375ml
This elegant port has rich red colour and the aroma is fine and delicate with good intensity. The taste is fresh and presents a variety of berry and other fruit flavours. In the mouth it has excellent volume, complexity and a very present acidity. The tannins are strong but soft and well integrated providing harmony and balance with notes of black fruit, especially plum. It has an appealing, intense and long finish. The taste is just as good as many vintage ports.

Ageing This port is ready to drink now if you want a young, concentrated and very fruity taste. But if you prefer a more mature and soft port, you should wait a couple of years - and then remember that decanting is necessary in order to avoid the natural depôt which arises because the wine is unfiltered. That is one of the reasons why it is possible to obtain this extremely high quality.

Cellar Late Bottled Vintage is sold as a compromise between vintage port and barrel port. Late Bottled Vintage is a wine from a good year, which is stored in barrels. Instead of bottling the port after two years, you have to wait until the port is between 4-6 years. This wine has been aged four years before bottling. Mainly Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão and Sousão grapes have been used for this port and all grapes are grown at Quinta do Pégo’s A classified vineyards in the Douro Valley in Portugal.
FoodSuggest This port is perfect as an ”after-dinner-drink”, but you can also enjoy Quinta do Pégo Late Bottled Vintage 2013 with almost all kinds of cheese, chocolate and candied fruit.
Serve it slightly chilled or at temperature between 14ºC and 16ºC.
Variety Touriga Nacional
